With Wrestlemania turning 40 years this year, WWE 2K24 comes with a special 40-year edition. This is a great way for fans of the wrestling game to enjoy the 40 years of nonstop wrestling entertainment put on by their favorite wrestlers.

There is nothing more interesting than training up your wrestler to become the ultimate winner and the best of the WWE universe.

WWE 2K24 also continues with the MyGM game mode. Becoming a general manager is easy, but to be the best? You need to work it out hard. MyGM lets you go head-to-head with rival managers in the fight for the top seat.

WWE 2K24 System Requirements

Now, when it comes to the system requirements for WWE 2K24, the developers have yet to reveal this information. Given that you can already pre-order the game for your Windows PC and other supported platforms and with the release date nearing, this information should have been made available right away.

However, one thing we can be sure of is that the system requirements for WWE 2K24 should be similar to those of WWE 2K23.

Let’s take a glance at what the minimum and reopened system requirements could be for the WWE 2K24 based on the previous year’s game.

Minimum System Requirements (based on WWE 2K23)

  • OS: Windows 10 64 bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i53550 or AMD FX 8150
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForceGTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 480

Take system requirements with a pinch of salt as these are the requirements that more or less would be perfect for WWE 2K24.
